NY Press beats NY Mag, which wasn't hard

Post Author:

When it comes to newspapers and magazines, we read all of 'em. So it took us a minute to catch up to NY Press's attempt to one-up New York Magazine's crappy 40-song playlist that intended to define Brooklyn circa 2006-now, or something.

Anyway, the Press list is informed enough to not read like a 45-year old editor randomly arranging Hype Machine search results. Pasted below is the NY Press' top ten songs that define Brooklyn right now. Go here for the full list.

01 “Coward Cracks the Dawn” by Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers

02 “Ecstatic Rite” by Liturgy

03 “Open Shut” by Blank Dogs

04 “Don't Pass On Me” by Woods

05 “Bang For Changes” by Zambri

06 “I Hate New York” by Thorns of Life

07 “Hair Tapes” by Noveller

08 “Bear” by The Antlers

09 “Soda Popinski” by Javelin

10 “It’s Time!” by caUSE-coMOTION!
